Testimonials to Soviet success until the Soviet Union became profit-run: Computers

"The experimental Soviet BESM-1, produced in 1953, was judged by a Western expert to be 'a respectable computer' for its time, with a capability superior to that of the UNIVAC-1 introduced in 1951. [in the United $tates--mim3] The BESM-2, however, which went into production in 1959, was only a third as fast as the IBM-7094, introduced in 1955, and one-sixteenth as fast as the IBM-7090 of 1959." Anti-communist Christopher Andrew and Soviet defector Vasili Mitrokhin, The Sword and the Shield: The Mitrokhin Archive and the Secret History of the KGB (New York: Basic Books, 1999), p. 187.
